Property description

OCEAN TRAILS MENDOCINO ARTIST RETREAT

Get away to the glorious Mendocino coast and stay in a truly inspired dream house -- local artist Erin Dertner’s appointed getaway by the sea, receiving guests since the Spring of 2009. Boasting four bedrooms all with ocean views, 4 full baths, a large great room and a pool parlor that can become a 5th bedroom. The Retreat is spacious and non-allergenic, with mostly tile and hardwood floors. Enjoy the outdoor area with large gas grill and 2 picnic tables and a new (2015) 60 jet, 6 person, hot tub. Fenced-in area great for dogs to hang out.

Only 1.5 mi north of the village of Mendocino, yet far enough away to experience total peace and quiet. Russian Gulch State Park borders part of the house, and its a pleasant stroll on our private lane right into the park entrance (free admission for walk-ins) where you can walk along the headland trails, see a sinkhole, walk to the beach, hike to a waterfall, bike on a path through the gulch, and have glorious picnics on the bluffs overlooking the Pacific Ocean.

Enjoy the ample “cook’s kitchen”, the expansive deck and the comfortable quarters, complete with Erin’s artwork adorning every room. We're on the west/ocean side of highway 1 in a location many consider to be the most desirable for vacation homes in Mendocino, with ocean views to the south and west, from the living area and from all the bedrooms.

Perfect for 8 people, but can accommodate 2 extra people comfortably and seat 10 at the dining table; there is room to sleep more people, but please inquire as approval is needed. The master has a king bed and lavish bath with a 2 person shower and giant tub. A 2nd large room with king bed has its own bath with shower, while a queen bedded room and a bedroom with a set of twins (that can be made into a king) share a roomy bath with large shower. The living room and both king bedded rooms have ample floor space for futons while the entry/pool room has a trundle for 2, which is also connected to the 4th full bathroom. With televisions in the living room and Art Studio room, many books, board games and your own pool hall, this is a perfect spot for groups of all ages.

The vacation home is regularly monitored by the owners to maintain quality, and is professionally managed, to give guests at Ocean Trails a worry-free vacation experience.

Notes:

There is a Pet fee of $20 per pet per night---pet fee is accounted and billed separately and not included in VRBO quote since VRBO cannot account for multiple pets or nights.

Owner info

About the owner: Hardy and Kim Hodges have been in real estate for over 15 years and continually seek hidden gems---this dream vacation home in Mendocino, appointed by well-known local artist Erin Dertner, is sure to satisfy. We have been operating vacation rentals in the NYC area for about ten years, and have experience ensuring our guests have a great, relaxing, time. Personal interests include cosmology, hiking and bicycling, and traveling the world with our two daughters. Our primary home is in Marin County (CA), across the Golden Gate bridge from San Francisco.

Why the Owner Chose Mendocino, CA, USA:
Location, location, and views! Virtually 'next door' to Mendocino Village, but in a quiet and exclusive neighborhood widely considered the most desirable location for vacation renting on the north coast. The Retreat borders Russian Gulch State Park, an amazing park with trails, bluffs, beach, waterfalls, and biking---accessed by an easy stroll into park. And then the lovely ocean views...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Guest Comments: 'The bed was so comfortable that we went home and bought the same kind.' 'We leave here happy, peaceful and rested.' 'Loved every minute here, you thought of everything, the view, the remodel, the stove...we are looking forward to returning soon.' 'Your kitchen is equipped better than my house and I've lived there for 10 years!' 'We absolutely loved everything about your house. Looking from this gorgeous view was a real treat. You had all the amenities of any first rate spa, except no spa is surrounded by such gorgeous artwork.' 'We had a wonderful time in your home and truly appreciate your work in accomodating all TEN of us. It is amazingly spacious and has the most gorgeous view over lovely gardens, natural habitat and the sea. On the morning we left, two deer ambled into the driveway and helped themselves to some of your flora. Since we live in the city, it was a thrill to see them 'up close and personal,' as my daughter likes to say. I also appreciated all of the little touches you arranged and the ample use of your kitchenware!'
